The double-kettlebell front squat is a popular kettlebell movement performed while holding two kettlebells in the front-racked position. It targets the muscles of the lower body dynamically, and the muscles of the upper back and core isometrically. It can be trained in traditional strength or muscle-building rep ranges, in circuit or fat-loss training, or as part of a larger kettlebell combination or complex.
Encourages proper squat form and depth with an upright torso
Allows heavy loading that can challenge the lower body in strength-focused rep ranges
Strong isometric contraction of the biceps, lats, upper back, and core
Cleaning the kettlebells to the rack position trains the hips, core, and back muscles
